The Archives and Records Department provides a records management service for Glasgow City Council and Glasgow Life.
We recognise that the efficient management of records is needed to support core functions, comply with legal and regulatory obligations and to contribute to the effective and overall management of the organisations. We are committed to establishing and maintaining record keeping practices that meet our business needs, accountability requirements and stakeholder expectations.
The programme provides a storage and retrieval service for files and other records which are no longer current, but which cannot yet be destroyed, for administrative, legal or commercial reasons.
We also ensure the preservation as archives of those records which are valuable for historical or other research purposes.
The Records Management Section was established in the 1980s as part of Strathclyde Regional Archives. It retains the records of Strathclyde Regional Council and many of its various sub-regional offices.
There is no direct public access to records within the Records Management programme.
